Melissa Scallan is the author of the bestselling student guide Starting University.
As an adviser to UCAS, the UK's universities and colleges admissions service, Melissa's advice to students on making new friends and dealing with homesickness is shared on the UCAS website and she was a panelist on one of UCAS’ most watched Facebook Live webinars (viewed over 60,000 times).
Melissa delivers informative and reassuring talks to sixth form and college students about preparing for university.
She also speaks about the student experience at conferences; most recently at the University of Leicester's Teacher and Adviser Conference and for Universities UK Enhancing the Student Experience conference.
As a journalist, with a background in research and a Master's degree in psychology, Melissa's work is carefully researched and thoughtfully presented to prioritise the wellbeing of students as they take this exciting and life-changing step into higher education.
